Staff Reports Posted 10 April 2020 at 2:50 pm

Sgt. Shelby Sargent from Albion has re-enlisted to continue service with the Headquarters & Headquarters Company, 427th Brigade Support Battalion of the Army National Guard.

“It’s great to see soldiers staying in the Army and continuing to serve their State and Nation in the New York Army National Guard,” said Major General Ray Shields, the Adjutant General. “The most important Army asset we have is the individual soldier. The dedication, skills, and leadership traits they bring to our community and their employers are invaluable.”

The New York National Guard (New York State Division of Military and Naval Affairs) is the state’s executive agency responsible to the Governor for managing New York’s Military Forces, which consists of nearly 20,000 members of the New York Army National Guard, the New York Air National Guard, the New York Naval Militia and the New York Guard.

“By choosing to stay in the Army National Guard they directly contribute to our nation’s security and to the governor’s ability to respond to disasters, all while building a bright future for their family through the Guard’s retirement, education, and health insurance programs,” Shields said.
